Uninstall setroubleshoot Package


The SETroubleshoot service notifies desktop users of SELinux denials. The service provides information around configuration errors, unauthorized intrusions, and other potential errors. The setroubleshoot package can be removed with the following command:

$ sudo yum erase setroubleshoot


The SETroubleshoot service is an unnecessary daemon to have running on a server, especially if X Windows is removed or disabled.

#	   from the system, and may remove any packages
#	   that depend on setroubleshoot. Execute this
#	   remediation AFTER testing on a non-production
#	   system!

    yum remove -y "setroubleshoot"


    >&2 echo 'Remediation is not applicable, nothing was done'
